Hey Marcos, what tires are those in the first post?? is it a sticky compound or what.

Regarding practicing in the rain...hmmm , If it were for the world finals... but it's kinda messy... got to waterproof the whole car... you know

those tyres are by kissling imported by rbconcepts. as far as water proofing all i do is the receiver i wrap it with a ballon and clear silicone, and thats it servos are usually water tight i took my sterring servo appart one time after a run and it was completly dry in the inside.

Rodrigo, than when you have your "practice car" all dialed in and doing good lap times you're gonna switch to the other car for the race??

the car was a little quiet but i was running solo i guess with all ten cars out there im sure that i would be alot better than with out them , as of power i felt that the car had about the same power considering that you have to ease up on the the throttle response and change your driving style a little bit to suit it for a wet track.

Hey Cox049, old buddy Hope you don't mind, but I liked you paint scheme so much, I pinched it I've used a more serpent friendly colour of course

I don't have my Digi cam at the moment, but here's what it looks like.

Cheers, Mark.

Mark, do you only race sedans/touring at your club? No one uses lola and that sort?

But only for 1/8th and 1/12th racing. On the Nitro circuit, the most popular class is the 1/5th - which I find really boring. 1/10th Touring Car and 1/8th Sportscar are equally split.
Indoor it is virtually only 1/10th TC - only the odd 1/12th wizzer (including yours truly) to mess up the TC scene
